Stephanie's experiments in dyeing wools for Primitive Rughooking

Tuesday before I dashed out the door of the Country Loft with my quickly developing flat tire I saw what Stephanie was working on.Stephanie is making a hooked rug and needed a background color so she experimented to get the right color. Stephanie has a customer that wanted a certain primitive color selection.The swatches on the left is what she had to work with and how it turned out is the right wool swatch. I love the colors.

Those are great colors. Sorry about your flat tire. I didn't get back to that post to comment. I think it's crazy that they charge for air now. What next??
